According to insiders, Apple is working on a stand-alone AR/VR headset, codenamed T288. This headset is reportedly going to feature 8K display in each eye and will connect to a dedicated processing box that is more powerful than a smartphone.

Mercedes Benz has rolled out an AR owners manual for their 2018 E-class and S-class customers. This would allow users to learn more about interior features, controls, and functions by scanning the car with their smartphone camera to see AR information beacons on their phone. These beacons will explain the functions through text, photos, and videos. This shows the potential of AR in complex navigation systems.
